Percutaneous mitral valve repair is an important procedure for patients at high risk of surgical mitral valve repair. Multi-modality Cardiac Imaging plays a key role in these procedures. MitraClip is the first and most studied percutaneous mitral repair device and experience is has grown to treat not only typical but atypical and complex lesions. Cardioband is an emerging percutaneous annuloplasty system with promising early results. This review will focus on the comprehensive multi-modality cardiac imaging for patient selection and intra-procedural guidance of the MitraClip and Cardioband systems.
